January Rewind

After struggling through our Best Of 2007 posts, Joe and I decided to start a new feature. At the end of every month, we are going to recap some of the musical highlights of the month that was. Videos, albums, remixes... this will help you find anything that you may have missed. Plus it will really come in handy in December, when we have to go back through the year. Since February is already half over, let's get cracking...

January was a great month for regional releases. There was not a huge quantity of them, but there definitely was quality.

In addition to those, a few bands released some one off tracks and live music, including a track by Bellman Barker that they recorded exclusively for us.

Philly's The A-Sides recorded a Daytrotter Session and DC's Jukebox The Ghost stopped by WOXY's studios.
